    Pros

    Superb Reputation in Post-Secondary education. Focused on dynamic Aviation industry. Strong supporter of Military students. Great benefits and retirement plan.

    Cons

    Poor compensation for the level of responsibility. Campus Director is responsible for significant organizational profits and is paid less than a public school teacher.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate Campus Directors at a level that is commensurate with their position and positive financial impact to the overall institution.

    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, and the community of staff members is really like a family. In my opinion, the negative comments are mostly from employees who are not applying themselves. If you do a good job, you are rewarded. And there is a reduced work week in the summer. I love it!

    Cons

    There is a lot of organizational change, and all of the difficulties that go along with that, but that's the case anywhere. Sometimes things are run more like a business than a University.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on academic quality, not just the numbers.


  9. "Good place to work as a student"

    Pros

    Very flexible work hours for students. Having a job on campus saves time and money.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be very boring. Management can be condescending depending on where you work.

    I worked at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tuition assistance, good pay for the area, summer hours, paid time off between Christmas and New Years for full-time, exempt, good benefits package. Time off accrues pretty quickly. Generally talented people tend to gravitate here.

    Cons

    Some departments are better than others. Cut from a corporate cloth. Numbers/productivity focused. Some departments allow for growth but most have no room for advancement so the really good people tend to leave within a couple of years. The longer you are there the more you are encouraged to take on more responsibility, projects and tasks without a title upgrade or extra money. Won’t allow casual Friday’s or wearing of jeans except for part of fundraising campaigns periodically. If you had a previously awful employment experience this place will seem like paradise. If you have ever had relative freedom you may feel like you are being suffocated. Ultimately the manager you are under will determine how much you enjoy your position.

    Advice to Management

    Upper leadership has an attitude of not wanting anyone to questions. Successful in their mission of making money but is stuck in the past as far as management tactics go for a school that prides itself for teaching in the technology and aerospace fields, which thrive on cutting edge advancement. This should be an amazing place to work, please try not to run it into the ground.
